Catalogue Note

Roberts painted this watercolour in order that it be engraved by J. Stephenson and included in Thomas Roscoe’s The Tourist in Spain and Morocco, illustrated from drawings by David Roberts (published by Robert Jennings, London, 1838). The watercolour is based on a drawing that Roberts executed while in Tangier on the 9 March 1833, which is now in the British Museum, London (1910.2.18.52).

We are very grateful to Krystyna Matyjaszkiewicz for her help when cataloguing this lot.
